This is the Langham Hotel’s cocktail bar, sister to their modern tavern and another DrinkUp favourite, The Wigmore… neither of which disappoint. Having reigned supreme champion as World’s Best Bar for four whole years, its name precedes it and being located just off Oxford Street means it’s a popular spot with tourists too. But don’t let that put you off, step inside and a sense of calm washes over you, as this bar runs like a well-oiled machine where David Collins has created a world of purple, copper and butterflies with a nod to the orient. Some of the cocktails have been known to be equally as extravagant, but with genuinely interesting themes to their menus and ahead of their time techniques this is high on our list.
